A Man with a Quilted Sleeve


Artist: Titian

Year: c. 1510

A Man with a Quilted Sleeve is an oil painting by Italian artist Titian in 1510. After 1904, the painting became as a part of Lord Darnley’s collection and is now at the National Gallery, London. The painting was formerly known to be the picture of 16th century’s poet Ludovico Ariosto, some also believed that it was a portrait of a man from the Barbarigo family depicted by Vasari but modern critics conflict the idea.
The painting was believed to be a part of the collection of Alfonso López and probably also that of van Dyck. In 1639, it was handed over to an art dealer in Amsterdam. The painting had an influence on works of a Dutch painter Rembrandt and German Baroque art-historian as well as painter Joachim von Sandrart.
